Selina has just arrived in San Jose, and our new location is the perfect place to take in the cultural renaissance going on in this city. Selina’s one-of-a-kind hostel experience, which brings together the explorer, artist, and entrepreneur, is fast becoming part of the Costa Rican capital’s ecosystem. With a co-working space, playground, and a restaurant/bar, you’ll feel right at home with us. Selina offers lodging options for everyone, from dorms and camping areas to private rooms and luxury suites. Located in Barrio Otoya, we are smack in the middle of the amazing art, cuisine, and nightlife of this up-and-coming city. It truly is an exciting time to be in San Jose, come be a part of it with Selina!

Nice place, not far from the city center (10 minute walk). This hostel is great for solo travellers, too. They have multiple common areas and a nice bar (though a tad bit expensive). Room was very spacious.

Great hostel, attention to detail in every corner. Fun shared space, great kitchen for cooking, and nooks for reading or using your computer. Dorms are really reasonably priced (I stayed in a 4 bed dorm with its own bathroom). Food and bar prices are way too high.
